Show margins and bleed

Planning to have your design printed?

If you plan to print your design, it is important to take note of margins and the print bleed area. Adjusting your design according to these margins ensures nothing gets cut during printing.

Show margins

Margins serve as guides to help prevent important elements (e.g. text, photos with faces, etc.) from getting close to the design edge. Anything close to the design edge is at risk of getting cut during printing. Make sure you keep your important design elements within the margins.

To show the margins on the editor:

  1. Click File from the menu bar.
  2. Select Show margins. The margins will show on your design.
  3. Adjust your design’s most important elements so they fit within the margins.

Show print bleed

Print bleed is an area which allows you to extend part of your design beyond the page dimensions. This ensures that no white or blank borders will appear on your printed design especially if colors or intricate backgrounds are used.

To show print bleed on the editor:

  1. Click File from the menu bar.
  2. Select Show print bleed. The bleed will show as an extended gray area around your design.
  3. Adjust your design’s background by dragging and extending it within or beyond the bleed area.
